    Patience, they’re working on the problem. A few rockets blew up on the launch pad before getting to the moon.

    Not even close to being right.

    Snerk!. Healthcare needs to be reformed, but Obamacare isn’t the way to do it.

    That’s the problem Gypsy, is they are NOT working on the problem, which is what the house poorly attempted to force. Those behind the ACA have this crazy notion that it’s fine just the way it is and are unwilling to deal with it’s issues. Taking your example, this administration seems to feel blowing up rockets on the launch pad is the ultimate goal and working just fine.

    Obama answers: “Well, take care of that then, I’ll be on the golf course vacationing in Hawaii!”

    Then how should it be done? I hear very little from Republicans on that front, aside from the “Well, They Can Go To The ER” plan.

    They would if the GOP were capable of making any positive or useful suggestions.

    “Would they listen to any alteration proposals made by the GOP?”

    Hard to say. But you never know until you try. If you don’t try, you will almost always fail.

    I’d love to believe that, and that certainly would have been preferable. All I saw/heard was how awful it was, but I did not read or hear anything about doing anything except wanting to “repeal and replace” (with nothing).

    I can tell you that the plan suggested by Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan would have bankrupted the country faster than you can even say Obamacare.

    First step was to eliminate Obamacare. This would re-introduce the ability for insurance to choose not to cover due to pre-existing conditions. Second step was to make Medicare so unattractive that people would “want to” change to private insurance.

    How many seniors do you know who do not have a pre-existing condition? So seniors opting out of Medicare would have no alternative except the emergency room, and only Mr. Romney is dumb enough to believe e-room care is “free”.

    Also, the plan was to let each state decide on its own plan. Now, let’s think back: it took about three years and untold millions in lobbying, legal fees, and payoffs (?) to take Obamacare to the Supreme Court. Now, multiply that time, money, and effort by 50 (or 51 if you count D.C.)

    Not to mention the fact no one would know what to do in the meantime, and that the “meantime” would vary widely from state to state.

    If you know of a different idea that was suggested, I’d really like to hear it.

    @Debt Free

    Um, maybe because of the very positive results in Massachusetts?
    Or is it because we all understand what a problem the pre-existing conditions situation was. Or that paying into a policy for years and then having them drop you as soon as you start costing money was not cool. Or that…oh hell this could go on for quite a while and you will still continue with your irrational hate, so screw it.

    A decent analogy, but not correct. GM could always build a car that people wanted more. I am pretty sure that, with all the legitimate and all the made-up reasons to dislike Obamacare, if a better model were to appear, the public would make its wishes known. GM can improve the Ford, or GM can replace the Ford. If GM says that the public should just learn to walk everywhere, no one wins.

    I always liked the Ford Edsel but nobody else seemed to and it died.
    My emergency room visit two days ago cost the taxpayers $7000. Thank you.
    But the rule against dropping clients when they contract cancer would have meant no ER visit, I would have still had my insurance and I would not have to be thanking working men and women for my care.
    Too selfish to just die, sorry.

    The same people who rail against spending are having a field day criticizing a lowest-bidder website. You get what you refuse to pay for, folks.
